Thur 3/16/23 Spring Skiing at Fairgrounds

Fairgrounds trails were groomed this AM. There was a lovely waxing crescent moon in the southern ski and a red glow to the southeast as I hooked up the groomer this AM. Conditions are mixed and variable. Plenty of snow in most places but the strong sun has taken a toll already on the new snow in the back 40. Conditions generally better on the front 1/2 with more spring adventure-like skiing in the back 40 where the trail is rerouted to avoid rapidly disappearing snow cover along the trees. And best to use the cut-through behind the barn - the other one is very very thin. Its spring and we expect that cold mornings and warm afternoons will create grooming challenges. But we've GOT SNOW so hope you get out there and enjoy it while it lasts. /groomer sasquatch/
